HC Deb 15 March 1955 vol 538 c1106
27. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the official report from the River Tweed Commissioners that the large number of seals off the coast constitutes a menace to the Tweed salmon industry; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. J. Stuart

I have seen references in the Press to this Report. The protection of salmon fisheries in the Tweed is, in the first instance, a matter for the River Tweed Commissioners, from whom I have received no representations on the subject.
